    Compensation for a damaged knee

    How to find out if you are entitled to compensation for a damaged knee

    In May, 1936, the famous golfer Earnest Whitcombe, a Ryder Cup golfer, was suffering from a knee injury which might have prevented him playing in the Open Championship at Hoylake in the following June.

    “I was doing a thing I have done a million times, just teeing up a ball,” said Whitcombe. “As I was bending somehow I slipped over on one knee. Now I am suffering from a strained ligament and can just hobble about on 2 sticks. I am having a massage twice a day but my doctor is not sure if I will be able to play in the tournament.”

    Missing out on

    If you are suffering from a knee injury like golfer Earnest Whitcombe, maybe you are not missing playing in a major golfing championship but whatever you are missing out on, whether it is work or play, will be every bit as important to you.

    If you have been in an accident and suffered a knee injury within the past 3 years which was not your fault you may want to find out whether you are entitled to compensation for a damaged knee. The first step you should take after receiving medical treatment is to telephone Accident Advice Helpline. We are a compensation provider and law firm for personal injury compensation.

    A 30-second test

    A trained adviser will take you through a 30-second test which will identify whether you are likely to get compensation for a damaged knee. After that, an online calculator will estimate how much your claim for compensation could be worth if an accident solicitor represents you and wins. This would be on a no-win, no-fee* basis. All the solicitors who work with Accident Advice Helpline operate on these terms.
